, this does make us more vulnerable. >> well, here's -- if i were to take a look at what we need to be examining over the next week or two weeks, first of all, yes, we have reports that there are cia on the ground. it depends on what they're doing, if they're trying to get intelligence information on the makeup of the opposition, that's certainly something that we need in order to make estimates in terms of what a future policy might be toward them. but the key questions that i see right now are, first of all, i think there were legitimate questions about the legality or the constitutionality of how the president moved forward in his initial decision to take military action in libya. and then, secondly, because we can't predict what's going to be happening here, we need to have congressional -- not only congressional involvement, but something akin to the war powers act, if not the war powers act itself. we've been debating, you know, the constitutional balance on the war powers act since i was in law school, which was a very long time ago. but at the same time, it did provide a str

for us to have some sort of an alert system if you see defenseless civilians who were being massacred by gadhafi's forces. but obviously we are going to have to look at what develops on the ground on a case by case basis. i don't want to generalize right now and say that's what's happening and we're prepared to step in. it's going to require some judgment calls and those are difficult ones. but we have sent a clear warning to the gadhafi government that they will be held accountable, particularly when it comes to assaulting civilians. and some of the rhetoric that you have seen, for example, the idea that when gadhafi said that they'd be going door to door hunting for people who are participating in protests, you know, that implied a sort of lack of restraint and ruthlessness that i think raises our antenna. but as i said before, what i've got to do is make sure we're monitoring the situation and matching our actions with what we think will be helpful on the ground and also sustainable and we have got to do so in consultation with the international community. >> do you agree with your
